I own Trados Studio 2015 SR3. I have just downloaded Regex Match Provider but I wasnt' sure where to. After rebooting Studio it doesn't appear anywhwere, not even in the list of plug-ins.
Couold you please advise?
Hello Fausto Mescolini
Please note you must have ADMIN rights to download and install any of the Plugins.
Regex Match AutoSuggest Provider is a plug in for Studio and should be showing in Studio/Editor View
If you cannot see this, please restart your PC and see if you can now see the app.
You should also be able the app listed in the SDL PlugIn management Tool-
When searching in your PC- this is where you should find the PlugIn
Does any of this help?
Regex Match indeed doesn't appear in the Management Tool (but I found it in its folder). How do I get the admin rights to my own computer??
I think what Steve means is that you need to be logged on as a user who has the rights to install programs. Some users install as admin and work under a different profile that doesn't have the rights to install applications.
If you have already got this then just copy the sdlplugin file to this location and restart Studio:
c:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\15\Plugins\Packages\
I know what it means Admin, my account is already admin, but for some reasons sometimes Windows still treats me as a non-admin...
Anyway, I have managed to make Regex appear in tne plugins, not following Steven's steps, but by clicking "Plug-in" under "Add-ons". Now I just need to make it work and to remember why I had downloaded, more than one year ago.... :-(
The only folder where plugins seem to work for me is C:\Users\Fausto\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\12\Plugins\Packages (I don't have the "15" folder).
Hello Fausto Mescolini ,
As you have Studio 2015- the correct folder will be indeed the 12 (= 2015)
15 is referring to Studio 2019 (confusing i know).
My original steps would only have worked if the plugins were in the correct folder in the beginning, which wasnt the case.
But good that everything now works for you.
